Shimla, April 10

Himachal Pradesh CM Jai Ram Thakur has ruled out any restrictions on the entry of tourists into the hill state as the beleaguered tourism industry is already reeling under the impact of the pandemic.

Despite apprehension of a night curfew in worst-hit border districts of Una, Kangra and Solan, the Cabinet, at its meeting on Friday, desisted from imposing any such restrictions. “We are not in favour of a lockdown or restrictions on the entry of tourists as a large section of our population is dependent on tourism,” Thakur said.

Himachal today recorded 941 cases. The highest 195 cases were in Solan, followed by Kangra (144) and Mandi (134), where MC elections were held on April 7. — TNS
